Online resources

The Library subscribes to a range of online resources specializing in the Humanities and Social Sciences to support students and scholars' research interests. Online resources are intended to provide 24/7 access to the library collection.

On-site access is automatic for most of the resources the Library subscribes to and requires a computer or mobile device connected to the AKU-ISMC or IIS network.

Off-site access is available through OCLC authentication and requires a username and password; however, off-site access can only be provided to registered members of the Library.
